Nodes and groups that contain information about their location in the OpenStreet format are displayed automatically. See Place nodes automatically on the Worldwide Map

Objects with the same position are displayed as one location.

Although there is one Worldwide map, you can add the Worldwide Map resource to multiple views, and display different objects and information on each view. For example, you can apply different zoom levels, use different titles and subtitles, or center the map on different coordinates.

If you cannot see the Worldwide Map resource on a view, add the resource. See Add resources and columns to views, and define subviews.
